SOURCE: windshield wipers

The fuse panel is under the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. Lift the handle to unlatch the panel and pull it down. The windshield wiper/washer system uses a circuit breaker in position #2 in the fuse panel. If your washer is working the circuit breaker is OK.

Windshield wipers work when fuse is in but won't turn off unless you remove the fuse. Won't pass inspection. Help!


Check the relay relay maybe latched on. See if there is an identical relay in the box and swap them if problem goes away replace relay.

My 1997 Ford F150 dies whenever i turn on wipers


sounds like a new problem, I would try unpluging the windshield wiper motor under the hood turn on the switch inside the truck and see if it still dies, if it doesn't suspect a short inside the wiper motor itself (replace wiper motor).

1990 Ford Taurus GL windshield wipers park in the wrong position


I have a 1996 Ford Taurus with a similar malfunction the intermittent wiper function is erratic, but the wipers park properly. I'm the original owner & this malfunction was in the car from the factory. I have a regular Ford Dealership manual & came to the conclusion that the Generic Electronic Module located behind the fuse panel is bad (computer glitch in programming) ! Ford Dealers want over $ 300.00 for a brand new module, I haven't checked with my local used auto parts recycler yet, but I know it will be less than the dealer price !
